Jonathan's Place Presents "A Chance to Soar" at Brook Hollow Golf Club - DeMarcus Ware Honored

Enthusiasm for the cause was flying high at Brook Hollow Golf Club when Jonathan's Place welcomed actress, author and adoption advocate Nia Vardalos and former Dallas Cowboy DeMarcus Ware to "A Chance To Soar". A capacity crowd filled Brook Hollow's formal dining room on April 19th as patron's turned out to show their support for this wonderful organization that provides a safe, loving home and specialized services to children who have been abused, abandoned or neglected.

Dallas Light and Sound is proud to have been selected by Jonathan's Place to provide audio, video projection, stage design and lighting for "A Chance to Soar." 
It's a capacity crowd at Brook Hollow Golf Club for "A Chance to Soar", presented by Jonathan's Place.
Former Dallas Cowboy  DeMarcus Ware and his former wife adopted their daughter Marley
after three failed pregnancies.  DeMarcus has been involved with Jonathan’s Place since 2006.
Jonathan's Place chose Ware as their 2014 honoree at "A Chance to Soar" for his continued support of the organization.

Keynote speaker, actress and adoption advocate Nia Vardalos Nia connected with everyone in the room
thanks to humorous tales and heart-wrenching memories of adopting her daughter Ilaria in 2008.
Interested parties can read more about Nia's journey as an adoptive parent in her book "Instant Mom".

Ware had this to say about Jonathan's Place.  “I’m a big advocate of giving people a second chance because of my little daughter. I adopted her from birth and she’s been a big blessing to me from a lot of the devastating things that have happened to me with pregnancies that happened to my ex-wife. It’s all about giving people second chances and giving them opportunities they never had."

“At Jonathan’s Place, they shelter, they mentor and they get kids from newborn all the way to 17 years old back to the stage where they can go back into society and feel comfortable, so that’s the reason why I’m a big advocate of what they’re doing and I’ve seen how they’ve progressed through the years and it’s been great.”
